Stayed for a week at this beautiful place. Staff were so accommodating. We fished while we were staying there, caught many fish which our chef gladly prepared for us on several occasions . We highly recommend this resort. Only reason we give 4 instead of 5 stars is that there is not much happening after 8pm. Depending on your travel...

This is a great place to stay. The staff and guides are very friendly and attentive. I loved the beach. We stayed in the family villa and had a front door view of the ocean, it was amazing! The sunsets are divine, the pool area is great. It really is a nice place to stay with good people all around.

I brought 6 of my family to Samara for a few days and truly enjoyed our villa and the view of the ocean. The place was clean, breakfast included was delicious and the view was,specatular. Calm ocean, large swimming pool and we all enjoyed our time there.

We went to this hotel as part of a Monkey Tours package, and I was anxious about some of the negative reviews. I have nothing negative to say about this establishment, and was very satisfied with what we experienced. We stayed in one of the standard garden rooms. It was clean and recently upgraded...with everything we'd need. The air conditioner...

We came for the end of our tour. Nothing posh but just fine. It could use a deep clean but sheets and bathroom are clean. We upgraded to 1 bedroom villa with ocean view. It it large with full kitchen, sitting area, patio, and hammock - just steps from the beach. Air conditioning in bedroom only and no tv. Food...

This hotel seems to have peaked long ago, beach seems ideal for small children. The entire area could use better grounds keeping and the facilities a face lift. The fitness center is three aerobic machines and a broken universal machine. Breakfast was adequate but not much more.

We were here at the end of a Costa Rica tour and couldn't have been happier with our final beach destination. We upgraded to an ocean view room and were absolutely thrilled with what we got. Our villa had two bedrooms, a kitchen, and a living room but best of all was the 'double-decker' deck with two hammocks! I spent...

We stayed at this hotel in June 2015... It was very nice. We upgraded to the ocean view and it was definitely with it! The only issue we had was that there was a bat in our room when we got there... The staff immediately took care of it and everything was great from then going forward. Would definitely recommend...

My husband and I were on a tour for our honeymoon and one of the hotel stays was at this hotel (Hotel Villa Playa Samara). We were super excited to get to the beach resort and enjoy our time at the beach. We got to our rooms and half of the villa was overheated and the other had an AC...
